The makeup looks of female Olympians have been quite the controversial topic recently. While it is true that they wear makeup for self-expression during the games, we can’t help but admire how put-together they look no matter how strenuous the competition can be.
To hopefully mimic that effect, we picked out products that will stay amid sweat and still give you a natural flush throughout the day.
For base, go for something light and silicone-free to help your skin breathe and prevent it from caking when you start to sweat. Use Happy Skin’s Second Skin Cream Silicone-Free Foundation for the job.
Happy Skin. Available at Greenbelt 5 and SM Makati. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Add some color and shine to your lips with Laura Mercier’s Lip Glace in the shade Bonbon to draw attention to your smile. It’ll give it a nice pink sheen without being over-the-top.
Laure Mercier. Available at Shangri-La Plaza Mall and Rustan’s The Beauty Source. For more information, visit their website.
When the spotlight is always on you, make sure you have the right glow. Swipe on Benefit’s Watt’s Up! Highlighter for that needed facial boost.
Benefit. Available at SM Megamall and Glorietta. For a complete list of stores and more information, visit their website.
Work out that smize with the right eyeshadow. Athletes don’t always wear flashy shades, so opt for something neutral like the Too Faced Natural Eyes Neutral Eyeshadow.
Too Faced. Available at Sephora PH and Beauty MNL.
Complete your eye makeup with a waterproof eyeliner that won’t smudge no matter how much you sweat. Eyeko’s Sport Waterproof Eyeliner will do the job for you.
Eyeko. Available at Sephora PH.
Finally, keep your hair―whether it’s in an updo or just letting it fall―in place using Toni & Guy’s Hair Styling Hold Hair Spray.
Toni & Guy. Available at SM Aura. For more information, visit their website.
